Final week's challenge: Last Scrapper Standing

This is the final week of the Last Scrapper Standing challenge over at Memorable Seasons. It's my turn to host the challenge and I wanted to open it up to anyone interested...Jill will be giving away a gift certificate to her online store (Memorable Seasons) to one participant this week!

Here's the challenge:
Each participant must use at least 3 different stamps in 3 different ways on your layout. Any number of alphabet stamps used as your title all count together as a single stamp and a single use. If you stamp your title (no matter how long it is), you will have to come up with two other ways to use two different stamps on your layout. Choice of stamps and layout subject is up to participants. You can add any number of pattern papers or card stock to your layouts along with using more than 3 stamps, but must have at least 3 different stamps used in 3 different ways.

For my sample, I used stamps in these 3 ways:
1. Border--Circle stamps (stamped in a row as a brown border onto pattern paper) along with smaller dotted circle stamped in blue inside some of the brown circles; blue and yellow borders (stamped onto ledger paper as border accents)

2. Title --used 2 different alphabets to create my title (word "butterscotch" was stamped on pattern paper and cut out, the words "ice cream" were stamped directly onto the pattern paper) but both sets only count as one use.

3. Embellishment--100% Circle (stamped this circle image onto cream paper, then cut out with circle cutter and matted with pattern paper)

So I used at least 3 different stamps (actually used more--7 different stamps in all) in 3 different ways .

The Design Team will be voting again this week and we will be crowning one member with the title of Last Scrapper Standing and that person will also win the grand prize. We will announce the winner as soon as our votes are all tallied, so be sure to check back often. A random winner will also be chosen from among all the other entries (those playing along for fun).

I can't wait to see what everyone does with this last challenge!
